About the property

Charming, sun-filled and spacious Marais 2 bedroom in the heart of the City

This aristocratic 17th century building in the heart of the historic and stylish Marais district has old world charm and modern comfort. Majestic dimensions define this superbly located apartment tucked behind the gorgeous Rue Vielle du Temple. Old wood paneling, library bookshelves and enormous floor to ceiling windows lend the main living space elegance and reflect the building's historic status. The decor is a mix of traditional French – bergère chairs, for example – contemporary and art deco that gives it immense personality and individuality. No surprise that it is the cherished home of a successful musician.

With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the layout of this apartment is ideal for couples or families. Decorated in an eclectic style, it mixes trendy young features with traditional Parisian pieces. The master bedroom boast original polished parquet wood floors. The apartment has two contemporary bathrooms, one with a shower and the other with a rare full bathtub as well as a separate WC. The kitchen is small and intimate with a little breakfast table, perfect for a quick snack before you step into the theatre of the city that is quite literally at your doorstep.

For centuries the home to Parisian aristocracy, the Marais is very centrally located on the right bank of the Seine and spans the 3rd and 4th arrondissements. Today, it is one of the capital's most desirable districts to call home – and with its mix of twisting little streets, ancient squares, historic buildings and lively bars and restaurants it is not hard to see why. This area allows a visitor to step back in Parisian history simply by roaming the quaint neighborhood. The smell of the freshly baked challah from the Pletzl, Paris' Jewish Quarter, wafts over the cobblestoned streets. Do not miss a stroll round the majestic Place des Vosges or the Musée Picasso. All of Paris is accessible from this special apartment.

 As an added treat, just a few blocks away, you will find one of the best Parisian pastry shops - La République Pâtissière.

In an ideal layout, the two bedrooms are at completely opposite side of the apartment - perfect for those needing their own space and looking for privacy.

 One bedroom is overlooking the street (queen bed) while the 2nd bedroom (king or twin beds) is overlooking an interior courtyard. The salon, or living room, is spacious and lined in charming bookshelves. The dining table is connected to the salon that also includes a fireplace and large windows. The street, rue du Perche, is a one-way road and quiet during the day and night, the apartment itself is well isolated. There are 2 bathrooms, one has a shower and the second one has a bathtub.

There are two separate toilets, one near the entrance, one near the bathroom with the bathtub.
There is also a sofa bed in the salon that sleeps one person.

excellent stay in a charming part of Paris

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay in all respects from the initial contacts to the departure. The owner wrote a detailed note well before we arrived with all the important information, although a few were corrected by the booklet in the apartment (the passcode for the WiFi). The manager greeted us and was courteous and extremely helpful. The apartment is on the first not the third floor (one flight walkup)! That was great news since the luggage elevator was not working when we were there. The apartment was exactly as shown in the photos and everything worked. The floors and the details of the apartment were superb, high ceilings, very gracious. Fine for all 6 of us, four adults and two teenagers. Beds, including one pull out couch bed, a separate couch which one of the teenagers used, and 2 bathrooms were excellent. Kitchen well supplied and stocked. They gave us two keys, very helpful. Organic food store was very close, just around the block. Great local bistros, shops and the oldest covered market in Paris were close. Weather was superb which made it more enjoyable since we walked a lot. We did not use Paris Pass much because the local sites were more than sufficient to hold our interest. Nearest Metro station is about a 10 or perhaps 15 minute walk. Not too many tourists around which we liked. About a 15 minute walk to the Seine and slightly more to Notre Dame. We would go back if the apartment remains on the rental market. Not cheap but worth it. We greatly enjoyed Museum Orly and the Pompidou center for their superb impressionist and post impressionist collections, but avoided upscale restaurants and sections and places with herds of tourists in favor of bistro food in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Fred, for taking the time to write such a helpful and comprehensive review! It should be really helpful for our future guests. We were lucky to host your family. It was too bad the elevator had issues while you were there, normally there is never a problem with it especially since it had been replaced in the past 18 months Merci Beaucoup!

Spacious apartment in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

My 20/21 year old daughters and I spent three nights at this charming apartment between a week in London and a week in Italy. The location is fantastic for visiting the Louvre, Norte Dame, etc., and many other sites are an easy walk away. The neighborhood is especially nice, very Parisian, so brush up on your French because you will find many shops and cafes that don’t speak English. :)

Check in process was thorough. Patricia was very helpful, explaining how to work the kitchen equipment, etc., and available to answer any questions. We would stay here again!

It was a great location and the condo clean and quiet. The beds were very comfortable .

  • 3 of 5

The condo is charming and very dated. Needs to have an upgrade of furniture. We do not mean to be negative. Everything was great about the condo but with some nicer and more comfortable furniture it would be ideal. Especially for the

Price you are paying. Patricia and the owner were fantastic to deal with. The washer and dryer excellent. Didn’t cook so cannot really comment on the kitchen. Nice quiet area and great sleeps. Thank you.

Perfect space to enjoy Paris!

  • 5 of 5

We were met by a charming women who oriented us to the apartment and appliances. The space was clean and bright with floor to ceiling windows. Right in the heart of a vibrant, vivacious community, fantastic food, coffee, pastries, cheeses, charcuteres you could not ask for more. World class transportation, museums and culture only minutes away. We were a family of 5 and were quite comfortable in this beautiful space. Do not hesitate.

Car: not necessary

Often referred to as “Old Paris,” Le Marais exudes old-world charm and modern-day functionality in the city���s core. Cobblestone streets wind through Le Marais' dizzying network of hidden courtyards, provocative galleries, and ivy-covered boulangeries. The neighborhood’s meticulously styled aesthetic of painted windowpanes and antique relics is not an accident. Le Marais was well kept by its once thriving Jewish population, and its recent incarnation as a hotspot keeps it trim and tailored.
